New Delhi:  The Centre has sought nominations for anti-corruption officials to be appointed in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) against existing and future vacancies.

As many as 27 vacancies, most of them fall vacant in next two years, of Chief Vigilance Officers (CVOs) — who act as distant arm of Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) — will be filled up by the Government.

The vacancies are at the levels of Joint Secretary and Director.

“It may please be ensured that the officers sponsored should have completed the required ‘cooling off’ period before they are recommended for a second deputation.

“The officers once sponsored are not allowed to withdraw subsequently and it will be the responsibility of the cadre controlling authorities to ensure the release of the officers in the event of their final selection,” the Ministry of Personnel said in a letter to all Chief Secretary of State Governments and Union territories administrations.

Failure to take up the appointment or withdrawal from posting on the part of the officer will lead to debarment for five years along with its attendant consequences, it further said.

A Chief Vigilance Officer is authorised to decide upon the existence of vigilance angle in a particular case at the time of registration of complaint of corruption and mandated to screen all complaints before referring them to CBI.

The CVO is responsible for monitoring on corruption, malpractices and misconduct on the part of employees and to take remedial action.

Closely monitoring the case related to criminal misconduct of employees and coordinating with the CBI for expeditious disposal of such cases, are other responsibilities of CVOs.
